In a console application, I want to call a function that will perform some actions upon exit of the program. I use a defer block to do that. I also want to handle any errors that may arise from this clean-up function, but have discovered that errors cannot be thrown out of a defer body.
Is there a way for me to (a) handle any errors that may arise in this deferred clean-up function, or (b) call the clean-up function on exit in some way other than using defer? In C (where I'm coming from), I would just register the clean-up function with atexit, which would call that function normally allowing the error-handling routines also run normally.
If the answer is just something I overlooked in the documentation, please feel free to point me where I should be looking. Also, I reviewed the following forum thread:
It did not seem to address my question. But it was a helpful read all the same.
